Sponsored by the Lake Balboa Neighborhood Council
Where: The event will take place in the “Kite Field” which is located to the right of the road as you enter the park from Balboa Avenue.
The Event: The purpose of Lake Balboa Day is to celebrate the official renaming of our community from “Van Nuys” to “Lake Balboa.” There will be a presentation of a “Lake Balboa” sign by our city councilmen, Tony Cardenas and Greig Smith. The official renaming ceremony will take place at 1:00 and will be preceded by an introduction by the Birmingham High School Marching Band.
Live Entertainment: There will be live music and entertainment on a large stage set up in the park. There will also be bouncy castles and face painting for the kids, as well as other activities.
Parking: Parking is available along the sides of the streets as well as in the dirt parking lot across from the “Kite Field” where the event is being held.
Special arrangements have also been made for parking in the sod field on the west side of Balboa Blvd. Signs will be set up with directions to enter the sod field. You can then use the walk/bike path underpass to get across Balboa Blvd. The underpass will bring you directly to the event location.
Food: For the first 500 stakeholders who bring a coupon there will be a complementary lunch. However, you are also welcome to bring your own food or picnic and enjoy the day with us. If you did not receive our flyer with the coupon, you can view and print a copy here.
Informational Booths: There will be information booths set up for the Lake Balboa Neighborhood Council, the city councilmen, as other local vendors.
